The first reviews are mostly mixed in respect to Boehlert's coverage of the split in the lefty blogosphere between HRC supporters on the one hand, and Obama supporters on the other, in late 2007, until the Democratic Party convention. The other criticism is that some feel Boehlert's dating of the beginning of his narrative - around 2001 - is late, and by doing that, he managed to cut out some important early figures in the importance of liberal and progressive blogs.
The first review up at Amazon.com is quite positive toward Boehlert's coverage of our Alaska bloggers:
Worth the price of this book alone is "Saradise Lost," Boehlert's chapter on the tireless Alaskan bloggers who detailed the unlacquered history of McCain's surprise choice of running mate.
For example, before late August 2008, to non-Alaskans Governor Sarah Palin was known primarily to policy wonks (like me) who were following "Troopergate" and her other ethical irregularities. Once Palin was named John McCain's running mate, readers who wanted to know more--much more--about her encountered bloggers who bore unfamiliar names, such as Shannyn Moore and Andrew Halcro, and sites including The Mudflats, Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis, The Immoral Minority, and PalinDeception, just to name a few.
